MEMPHIS, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Nick Calathes
struck for 22 points in his first NBA start Saturday and the Memphis Grizzlies stayed on a roll with a 99-90 win over Milwaukee.
Calathes drained 8-of-12 from the field -- including 4-of-5 from 3-point range -- in his 35th NBA overall game. The 2009 second-round draft pick out of Florida easily bested his previous career high of 11 points, set Jan. 25 against Houston.
Zach Randolph provided 23 points with 10 rebounds and Marc Gasol contributed 19 points as Memphis racked up a sixth straight win and 11th in 12 games.
The Bucks got 23 points, six rebounds and seven assists from Brandon Knight in skidding to a sixth consecutive loss.
